Wild World – Are you an outdoor enthusiast?
Benefits of going on an adventure
And so the adventure begins …
1. Dirt improves our pyhsical health
Scientists have shown that our obsession with tidiness leads to a rise in allergies. Dirt strenghtens your immune system. This means: Going on an adventure is related to getting dirty. The consequence: We will become healthier.
2. No age limits – #goexplore
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Adventure has no age limits. You can stick with that activity for your whole life. Just stay curious about life and our planet earth.
3. Hiking grows your brain
Scientists have shown that hiking or walking grows brains. As soon as you leave the mid fifties behind, your hippocampus will get smaller. However, a study has shown that already a forty-minute walk a week for a year long grows the brain on average by two percent. Doing this for years, will raise your mental fitness.
4. Raise your tolerance for uncertainty
An adventure trip usually will not pass by as originally planned. Adventure means facing an unusual experience which also can be a bit risky and unsure in its outcome. People that are going on an adventure learn to cope with uncertainties in life. This tolerance for uncertainty will make them calmer in their everyday life.
5. Foster reflectiveness
Reflectiveness is in a short supply today. Our everyday life is stuffed with busy things. The days pass by without any significance. We are not really mentally attached to it. However, our adventures are important and pleasant memories. In busy and hectic times we love to indulge in those golden adventure days and thereby have a little escape from daily life. Additionally, reminiscing our adventures ever and ever again will lead to the capability that we can learn something from them.
6. Feed your dreams and build your confidence
The editor of the National Geographic Traveler Magazine described the cycle of travelling in a certain way: Dream, Plan, Go and Share.
No matter how you would describe travelling for yourself, one is sure: Discovering marvellous nature spots can be totally addictive.
Experiencing just one spot is not enough. Your soul and your body will soon call for more. Each time you go, you will change. You steadily build your confidence through travelling. With each travel adventure, you challenge yourself a bit more. Your dreams begin to grow and your soul is calling for more adventures: Live at the edge will become your motto. Could the fifth step of the travel cycle be called: DREAM BIGGER? So go out and explore, dream and discover.
7. Try out on alternate lives – Discover yourself
During your adventure trip you can live far beyond your own borders. Most likely, you live totally different than in the everyday life. This means that adventure trips may lead to you having a cold outdoor shower, sleeping under the stars or wearing the same clothes nearly a week long.
Maybe you are daring activities that you would not have tried out back home? What about skydiving or bungee jumping? Your travels will let you discover a new side of yourself so that you get to know yourself a little bit deeper.
8. Worldwide network
Exciting moments and brave adventurous days will become longlasting memories. Most often, you share those outstanding memories with people that you just have met. In the shortest of time, they will be as close as your good friends from home. Through travelling, you establish a worldwide network. Maybe you meet someone at the other side of the world who is not living far away from your city. Back home you can meet each other and indulge in old memories. Moreover, new travel options may arise. Visit your norwegian friend that you have met in New Zealand in his own hometown.
